ERP systems have been implemented by literally thousands of businesses of all sizes and in every market sector. Many implementations have been extremely successful and the businesses have reaped huge benefits. Other businesses found only expensive undertakings fraught with missteps and failed projects.

One of the critical factors between achievement and failure is the engagement of competent and experienced consultants to guide a business through the critical phases of the project.

How an ERP Consultant Can Help You

  • Requirements definition – gathering, categorizing, and prioritizing business needs
  • Vendor analysis – matching potential vendors against requirements, including technical offerings and available platforms
  • Vendor evaluation and selection – assisting with narrowing the field of vendors and final selection
  • Implementation – utilizing best practices and organizational skills to formulate and execute an effective implementation strategy
  • Training – guiding in training of company personnel and in-house IT staff
  • Support – providing implementation and on-going support

Selecting the consultant or consulting group to guide your business through a successful ERP implementation is key to the success of the project.
